Hi I’m Rick Shiels, welcome to my channel RickShielsPGAGolf. This NOnet channel is designed to help you play better golf, also to help you enjoy your golf more!
I specialise in golf club reviews, golf club unboxing, golf club news, golf club head to heads, and all about golf clubs.
I also want to make you play better golf by providing coaching video on all topics about golf, how to fix your slice, fix your hook, help you drive the golf ball longer, hit your irons more pure, hit your irons closer to the hole and help you draw and fade your golf shots.
I will also help you lower your score by chipping better by stopping you duff and thin chips, pitch the ball closer and also create backspin. Also I will provide you help to putt better and hole more putts!
On this channel I also make fun and entertaining golf content based on crazy and sometimes “gimmicky” golf clubs. I like to cut through the marketing hype about products and I like to give you the honest truth about golf equipment.
If you enjoy the channel make sure you hit subscribe and also tap the notification bell so that you are always notified when I release a new video.

    I love that you show the highs and the lows. I'm new to golf, been going to the driving range for about 6 weeks, bought a cheap set of clubs and played by first round a couple of days ago. It was an ABSOLUTE disaster but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I made par on a par 3 just narrowly missing the birdie put after a great tee shot. Also nearly drained a 40 yard chip for it to come round the edge of the hole and back towards me.

    You shouldn't have played the course with the mindset of must make a 75 or under. Instead relax and just play the golf you normally play. Then at the end see what you score.

    Golf is a war, physically and psychologically, with 18 separated battles where the designer owns the castle with the flag on the hill and surrounds it with obstacles to prevent the golfer from capturing the flag with 3 to 5 precise golf shots. The problem with stroke play today, psychologically, is that golf course design is so punitive - with holes like 255 yard par 3s - a non-elite golfer will probably never par. A bad hole or two early in a stoke play round can be mentally debilitating and affect concentration and performance and the punitive design of most courses nowadays almost guarantees the average weekend golfer will have two or three spirit crushing and score ruining holes. But that helps the girl in the beverage cart sell more beer so it a win for the course. I worked at a course for several years after retiring and the biggest profit centers were: 1) beer, 2) range balls. The course operated at a loss and stayed afloat financially on a sea of Bud Light. The reason golf is not more popular is that golf courses designed to challenge the skill of elite amateurs and pro are frustratingly punitive for the average golfer who does something other than play golf for a living. It is simply impossible to develop the skills necessary to hit the shaped golf shots a punitive golf hole requires for low stoke score consistently if one is not able to play daily and play not scoring practice rounds on the course with game balls. The pro and elite amateurs are able to hit hundreds of Pro VI shots at the range to how to hit a 5, 10 or 20 yard fade or draw (50 in the case Bubba Watson) and the precise yardages with those shapes with each club in the bag but mere mortals can’t. The USGA bemoans the fact more people don’t play the game and perhaps some day it will get a clue and make it less frustrating to play, like encouraging solo practice rounds with match-play - Win, Lose, Draw - scoring on each hole against the designer not the playing partner. Instead the USGA solution to the dilemma of golf holes being too punitive for an average golfer was to add extra tee boxes to change the length of shot required off the tee to reach the short grass (for the ladies) and the arcane handicap system so less skilled players would be motivated to pay to play in club competitions and have bragging rights at the bar after the round. The cost of maintaining one’s handicap adds a tax on top of the cost of equipment and greens fees. Fortunately outside of competition there is no need to play the game by USGA’s stroke play rules. Just follow the USGA match-play rules but do it with the mindset that your opponent isn’t your three beer swilling buddies it is the very sober and sadistic SOB who designed the course psyche you out and cause you to play worse that you are capable of; why most can’t take their game from range to the course. When I started playing golf at age 31 in 1983 in the Philippines where I was working in the Foreign Service I was smart enough to realize I would not have a chance in hell of being any good at and shooting par it until I retired and had the time to spend four or five hours, four or five days a week practicing. I played socially and sucked equally at golf and San Miguel beer with a good cigar and was very content doing that. In the Philippine when I’d hit a shot in a water hazard there would always be four or five little kids who would jump in, find it, and sell it back to me for a Peso ($0.05 US). A dozen new balls would last a year and I would joke I didn’t by them I leased them from the kids on the course. I got interested in the game again in 2003 after buying a house which had an artificial putting green. I started going to thrift stores to find putters and wedges and then started buying and re-gripping complete sets of older clubs like 1978 Wilson Reflex (the first slotted design) and Ping Eye 2. That is when I also started reading and buying golf books and taking them out of the public library and became a student of the history of the game and how the evolution of the equipment influenced the evolution of swing technique and how bringing the game to America and improvements in equipment at technique changed the philosophy of golf course design. It was taking a min. wage job as Starter at golf course in 2008 which finally allowed me to shoot a par round of golf after nearly three years of 200 ball range sessions followed by 9 - 27 hole non-scoring practice rounds 5 - 7 days a week. For instruction I decided to start with Hogan’s Five Lessons book as my baseline with the goal of learning how to control the swing the way he did to make it consistently repeatable, which I finally did with a set of old blade irons like he had used. The blade irons were unforgiving of any miss-struck ball but it was the feedback from those shots which gave me the clues I needed regarding the cause and how to fix the problem. I followed Hogan’s advice of only using a 7 iron until I learned to control ball flight with it. I practiced with only a 7 iron at the range then I would go play a nine hole round on the course with only the 7 iron tee to green. Eliminating the variable of all the different clubs was the key to making rapid improvement in my swings and learning to shape shots and control trajectory to control what the ball did in the air and more importantly after it hit the ground. When I started shaping my approach shots with my 7i to match the longest line from front sides of green to pin more and more of my approach shots stayed on the green compared to my weekend golf experience where straight shots would hit then roll off the back where the designer usually made recovering from that error costly in terms of stroke score. I didn’t start keeping stroke score until I had started shooting par or better on half the holes of the challenging nine-hole, Par 5 course which had been built as a golf academy with a large driving range and lots of hazard and challenging dog-legs on the course. When I did start playing by USGA stroke play rules I would often be a shot or two under par after seven holes then get a case of nerves wanting preserve that record (for me) score only to blow the last two and wind up five over. Finally one day the sun, stars and planets aligned and I managed to shoot par. Shooting a par round had been my goal and having accomplish it switched to the match play against the designer scoring method because I could gauge my performance just as will with it simply by counting the holes won against the designer with birdie or better. My new goal became needing more than one hand to keep score. 😂

P:S - I actually think I could teach YOU how to make a greenside bump and run shot, mine rock to the point that I feel more comfortable using an 8 iron to the "Texas wedge" from the fringe! ;-)

If these had gone your way you’d have broken 75 and more every time. Just a thought but great series pal !!

    Rick, not that I am expecting a reply but do you think that the golf course got in your head a bit? In the build up to the round, on the podcast and through the little teaser content, it seemed like you were genuinely apprehensive about the course length, I understand that a lot of it is to create a bit of hype and tension but it seemed like you were actually a bit worried before teeing off. Great content either way, thanks.
